About Us

We are a family-run, independently owned, optical practice, and proud of being truly independent! Our heritage, as “an Opticians in the village” spans over half a century, first located in the Corbridge Market Place. The practice on the current site on Hill Street, Corbridge, has been dedicated to serving our local community for nearly 50 years. We have served our local community and wider Tynedale, for over 50 years, because our community and our clients, is at the heart of what we do.

We are renowned for providing clinical excellence, a great client service and experience, innovative technologies both in the eye examination and with our dispensing of eyewear, and design-led frame collections and sunglasses.
